• EMOTION: When the main verb expresses any attitudes (sorrow, surprise, anger, indifference, concern, hope), the verb in the noun clause must be in the :
Verbs of influence and emotion precede the infinitive, not the subjunctive, when there is not another subject involved:
Quiero que vayas (I want to go [two subjects, subjunctive])
• DOUBT: When the main verb expresses doubt, disbelief or denial, the verb in the noun clause should be in the subjunctive: Dudo que vaya (I doubt that I'm going).
In general, creer, no dudar, ser verdad, and other expressions of conviction imply certainty and therefore will not require a subjunctive in the clause that follows, while no creer, dudar, no ser cierto, etc., will: Creo que irás. (I think you'll go). No creo que vayas. (I don't think you'll go).
• Ojalá (an Arabic term used to express wish or hope) is always followed by the subjunctive.
